My first try at making bread.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have never tried making bread before but I have several friends that are all experienced bakers.

So they directed me to this recipe for my first attempt: http://annastable.blogspot.com/2011/01/rustic-artisanal-no-knead-bread.html

 

So I gave it a try today and I have to say it was as easy as they said it would be and pretty darn tasty to boot.

 

Here is my first loaf.

 

 

As a matter of fact I have a second batch resting to do another one for Sunday morning.

So this morning I made a second loaf because we ate all of the first one. 

 

 

I think this one is even better.

OK OK Time to stop...... I do not want to read tomorrow, where todays was so good, you made a batch of fresh Dungeness crab chowder and had to hollow out just one more newly made loaf of bread to put it in.... that would be mean and only a rotten person would do that..... and don't take pics.... biggrin.gif

Where did you bake it? A Weber kettle using indirect heat is great for baking bread. Gives the crust a nice wood smoked flavour too.

Looks good.  Please PLEASE show us a photo of the crumb.

 

Bread anatomy:

 

1. Crust

 

2. Crumb (the interior).  The crumb is either open or closed: big or small holes

 

3. Ear which is formed next to the slash.

OK.  I've baked lots of bread, but what is an Ear??????????  Never heard of it.
